Mockoon quarterly news for September 2023: new releases, global rules, GitHub Action, and more.
Welcome to our first blog quarterly news! Usually sent in the form of a newsletter, we decided to publish it on our blog too.
In this update, we have a lot to share since June, including exciting new features, upcoming developments, and our commitment to privacy. Read on to discover what's been happening in the world of Mockoon.
🎂 Also, Mockoon just turned 6 years old. The MVP was released in September 2017. Time flies...
We have released three new versions since the last June newsletter, as we have moved to a monthly release schedule. 4.0.0 (July), 4.1.0 (August) and 5.0.0 (September). Among the new features and changes:
Thanks to the response fallback mode introduced in v4.1.0, it is now possible to create wildcard routes containing global rules, such as validating the presence of an Authorization header or verifying that the request body contains a specific property. Head over to our new Global routes with rules documentation section to learn how to create reusable responses and rules and apply them to all your routes.
We have officially launched a GitHub Action for the CLI, allowing you to effortlessly run your mocks within your GitHub CI environment.
No complex setup is required. Simply add the action to your workflow and provide a path to a local data file, or a URL, and you're good to go.
The development of Mockoon's Pro data synchronization feature for solo developers is progressing smoothly. We anticipate releasing this feature as part of the Pro Solo plan by the end of this year. Concurrently, we have also begun working on the team collaboration feature, which shares similarities with the solo data synchronization. You can look forward to this feature being available in the Team and Enterprise plans in the first quarter of next year.
We have recently removed Google Analytics from our website as part of our commitment to enhancing privacy. We now exclusively track the number of page views and referrals, using a somewhat old-school approach similar to a simple visit counter. We've come to realize that many metrics provided by traditional analytics tools are not the actionable insights we are looking for. So, why not keep it simple?
We have partnered with several other open-source projects that we admire and wish to support. Feel free to explore them!
